Fredrik Hjorth (Alpine Intro Course Feb 2016)

Richard Hartley and Jens Foell, a big thank you for the excellent training we had with you in February. It was an essential part of my ability to reach the highest peak in Sweden in challenging conditions. I look forward to come back to you again for tres picos and more. I can strongly recommend anyone who is interested in alpinism to go and train with Spanish Highs. You guys rock!

Thanks so much for organising our climbing session today.

Jens was a fantastic guide – we learned heaps considering it was only one day, felt like proper climbing! We definitely will book in with you next time we are back.

Saskia (Alpine Course, Jan 2015)

I can do the rope knots with my eyes closed now and soon there will be one in the garden on a tree to climb in. That rope part was really fun!

It’s really nice to talk with someone who is so much experienced and understands the mountains. You give me the confidence to go up alone where other people say I’m crazy going there. It would be nice to keep in touch by e-mail and Facebook. If I have questions about equipment, techniques or other stuff I will bother you by sending e-mails! And I don’t know when but I will come back to the Sierra Nevada and then I meet you again!

Thanks for the great experience!!!

I thank you, Felipe and Pepe, who guided us perfectly and of course Richard, who organized. Also was my great amusement to be with the whole group. Hopefully we will meet in the Sierra Nevada again.

Thanks for the course I found it very useful and increased my arsenal of techniques I now have at my disposal. I made a little video of our course linked here

Just a quick one to say a big ‘Thank You’ for organising and leading such a successful and enjoyable trip. I have some wonderful memories that, barring the onset of Alzheimer’s, will stay with me for ever!

Dear Javier, I am writing to thank you for creating, for the second time, a wonderful experience for me in the Sierra Nevada. Clearly you know your stuff, but where you go beyond is in creating the atmosphere, the fun, the enjoyment of the mountains and mountain life. I really appreciate your efforts, and am looking forward to a next time – that time it’ll be the ‘Integral’. All the best, Robert

The last two weeks have been amazing! Nice to be back again and doing a multi-activity holiday with winter skills, alpine mountaineering, scrambling and ski touring. I felt confident on doing those things with your guidance. It’s been fun and spectacular! Thanks so much to you all at Spanish Highs!

Dexter Heath (Alpine mountaineering April 2014)

Still it was an excellent hoot in Spain! Really enjoyed the trip. Plenty of variety. I would like to get more experience climbing on snow and ice as the last day was a good taster. It was good to meet up again, Thanks again for the experience, much appreciated. Please pass on our thanks to Felipe and good luck on Aneto.
